Knitting is in my DNA

I made this DNA cap and reading mitts for a friend who is heading off to graduate school.

A Real Life Takedown?

Reality imitates fiction? Yesterday's action might turn out to be chillingly close to the scenario portrayed in my novel, TAKEDOWN.

A post from KYLOBBIST at Investor Village:

"All the afternoon, everyone was having hard time following the party line on the NYSE breakdown. CNBC was reporting that NYSE did a software update, which caused the glitch.

I find it unlikely the NYSE, with top of the line IT folks, would schedule a software upgrade for the middle of the trading day.

So conversation turned to the Norse Attack Map. It tracks cyber assaults from other countries. This shows a coordinated attack to a data center in St. Louis owned by the NYSE.

Anyhoo, theorists claiming US officials and NYSE officials did not want to admit this on a day like today with the markets already tanking hard, and admit the attack was from China. I love the intrigue of it all."

FWIW you can see it here.
